Teaching & Research at the OWL MBA Clinic
The OWL MBA clinic will be a site for ongoing training and clinical exposure for medical and paramedical staff including but not restricted to medical students, residents, endocrine fellows as well dietetic interns and nurses. A program to involve pharmacy interns in a training and teaching capacity is also anticipated in the near future.
As the clinic flow gets established it is anticipated that the OWL MBA clinic will serve as a site for execution of various device, surgical and pharmacotherapeutic intervention clinical trials. We also anticipate that it will also provide a clinical resource for investigator initiated innovative clinical and basic research relevant to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of obesity and its related co-morbidities as well for formulating effective intervention strategies.
